Matt and Peter,
Launchpad was near beta release when the project was put on hold. I can't share any more specifics unfortunately but can assure you that it's not dead.
For now, we advise customers to roll their own or bring in a consultancy to implement Drive -- including provision/configuration of collaboration tools. Interworks and Slalom have both proven very capable in this regard.
what is Launchpad? I missed that presentation.
